Read It: The Taste of the Season
December 8, 2010
Like it or not, winter is here. For those of you who dislike the frost, let me remind you of three great things about the colder months: boots, beanie hats with pom-poms, and most importantly comfort food.
The winter months have a way of infusing bountiful flavors into each meal that are absent when cooking in the hot bustle of the summer and spring.
Diane Rossen Worthington understands this well. In her book, The Taste of the Season: Inspired Recipes for Fall and Winter, Worthington explores all the joys of our wintery indulgences.
From white bean and arugula stew gratinée to roast duck with lavender honey sauce, this book captures all the meals that will tantalize your taste buds and fill your stomach.
By including preparation tips and easy recipes that do not require you to hover over the stove (although that may be the warmest place in the house), you will be well prepared to make it through even the most chilling of nights.
I personally can’t wait to snuggle up with my electric blanket and one of these delicious meals!
How do you fight the cold? What are your favorite winter comfort foods?
